When Belgian melodic progressive metal band ETHERNITY presents their new album ‘The Human Race Extinction on September 14th, fans will see themselves confronted with an elaborate, dystopian concept album of highest quality.

To kick things off they have released their first track from the Album, “The Prototype”

“The Prototype” is a storming track that kicks in with a fast paced, high energy deluge of drums, bass and guitars. Julie Colin’s aggressive raspy vocals conjure up a definite dystopian feeling even with her smoother singing for the chorus. This is a perfect track that puts you in mind of Balderunner or Altered Carbon and a definite background piece of energetic metal for the likes of Cyberpunk 2020 or Shadowrun. An excellent piece of cyberpunk metal that really sets up what the album itself will be like.

A high-class self-released album (2015), festivals and shows with HammerFall, Vanden Plas, Rhapsody of Fire, Symphony X, Masterplan and Evergrey, Belgian melodic progressive metal band ETHERNITY has come a long way since brothers Julien and Nicolas Spreutels – as well as their cousin François Spreutels – started their musical project in 2000.

After recording demos, EPs and playing multiple live shows, the band finished work on their first official album ‘Obscure Illusions‘. Joined by guest Tom S. Englund (Evergrey), Kelly Sundown Carpenter (Firewind, Beyond Twilight) and Mark Basile (DGM) on the title song, ETHERNITY proved that they have the quality to convince fans from prog to melodic metal. “Obscure Illusions” was unleashed to the world in March 2015.

2017 saw ETHERNITY prepare for their second album, again securing the services of highly acclaimed DGM guitarist Simone Mularoni for mix and mastering. The result is a powerful, heavy and strong album, combined with plenty of melody. ETHERNITY’s already excellent songwriting has matured and reaches a new level with this new piece of work.

The album is titled “The Human Race Extinction” and delivers an apocalyptic concept story, whilst at the same time, all fourteen tracks can stand on their own perfectly. ETHERNITY show a more modern twist to their sound and songwriting on this new piece of work, reminiscent of the likes of Symphony X and Evergrey at times, but with a unique flavour added to it.

About Ethernity

Lots of demos recorded, a high-class self-released album (2015), festivals and shows with HammerFall, Vanden Plas, Rhapsody of Fire, Symphony X, Masterplan and Evergrey… Belgian melodic progressive metal band ETHERNITY has come a long way since brothers Julien and Nicolas Spreutels – as well as their cousin François Spreutels – started their musical project in 2000. All of them were still in their early teenager years at the time. They were quickly joined by two friends (guitarists Thomas Henry and Steve Widart) and played first instrumental gigs, while looking for a vocalist.

ETHERNITY found Julie Colin to be their vocalist and recorded a first demo in 2005. It took until 2013 when the band, after recording demos, EPs and being busy with live shows, finished work on their first official album, titled “Obscure Illusions”. Joined by guest Tom S. Englund (Evergrey), Kelly Sundown Carpenter (Firewind, Beyond Twilight) and Mark Basile (DGM) on the title song, ETHERNITY proved that they have the quality to convince fans from prog to melodic metal. “Obscure Illusions” was unleashed to the world in March 2015.

2017 sees ETHERNITY prepare for their sophomore album. Again the band secured the services of highly acclaimed DGM guitarist Simone Mularoni for mix and mastering. The result is a powerful, heavy and strong album, which doesn’t lack melody. ETHERNITY’s already excellent songwriting has matures and reaches a new level with this new piece of work. The album is titled “The Human Race Extinction” and delivers an apocalyptic concept story. At the same time, all fourteen tracks can stand on their own perfectly. ETHERNITY show a more modern twist to their sound and songwriting on this new piece of work, which reminds of greats such das Symphony X and Evergrey at times, but add a unique flavor to it. ETHERNITY have many aces up their sleeve, one being the familiarity and chemistry in the band. All musicians are skilled musicians and songwriters. And then there’s Julie – the voice of ETHERNITY. Julie brings a different kind of female vocals to the table. Her raspy and powerful voice adds a special flavour to the band’s sound, but is by far not the only that makes ETHERNITY special. There’s much more to come from this highly talented band, be sure about that!
